High School Coach Evaluation: DeJohnte is a constantly improving wing who's greatest asset is his consistent 3 point shooting.' He has extremely deep range, and he has expanded his game by now being effective off the dribble.' DeJohnte is a tough, strong player that does not shy away from contact both on drives and while rebounding at a high volume.' DeJohnte should be set up for a breakout season this year at Woodside.''– Coach Steve Jecewiz, Head Coach Woodside HS Men's Varsity Basketball

Coach Frank says:' DeJohnte is a versatile wing who plays with great energy and athleticism. He is an excellent shooter with range, very good shot mechanics and a player who can score on the move.' He has a strong upper body and is able to endure contact and finish around the rim.' When he gets downhill he is tough to contain as he has the ability to get to the line or score at the basket, maximizes his touches!' DeJohnte is an excellent rebounder on both ends, outworks people but also has very good bounce and strength.' He's scrappy, battles on every possession.' He has very good mobility and quickness and has the ability to guard multiple positions.' DeJohnte has the ability to put points on the board while also being a very willing passer, doesn't mind doing the dirty work like getting on the floor for loose balls, battling inside against bigger players, etc.' He's a difference maker, an effort guy!
